I guess the usual caveat should apply as the ice forms.
There is no such thing as safe ice.
Let somebody else be the test pilot and even then be carefull.
I can wait but I am getting excited to get the ice gear out.
All the best, Clark
For sure, Clark. No fish is worth your life!
We'll keep an eye on Jimmy/Sherman's and Grangers for when they start putting huts out. All are reputable, and, wouldn't endanger any of their customers lives. I'm sure early ice would be awesome for them as well, some extra business to be had during that Christmas break.
I have my own hut, now, but it isn't nearly big enough for the better half, myself and three boys...so will probably rent at least once this year.
